WHO gods God?

Who preaches to the preacher

When he needs preaching?

 

Who motivates the motivator

When he needs motivation

 

Who tends to the only doctor

When he is chronically ill?

 

Who will hold the hands

Of the holder?

 

I stretch my hands

As I close my eyes

Picturing God

And asking who gods over Him

When he needs counselling.

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

The refusal of some preachers (who are not little gods) to seek counsel from persons trained to help them is a huge problem. My father, a preacher, thought all he needed to do was talk with God–who made everything right. Thus absolving my father of dealing with harsh realities of his personal life and the lives of those for whom he bore responsibility (like me, his daughter). No apologies. No begging forgiveness. No admissions of wrongdoing. Tragic. No, the preacher is not God. And God does not absolve the preacher of his or her humanity. Even God couldn’t change this world with stooping/rising to the occasion of joining it and accepting responsibility as a human being. Living as we do. Not in some exalted enthronement surrounded by privilege and patrons.

Oh my. I didn’t mean to get carried away. Or maybe I did. Great poem, Cecelia!

True, and I feel your pain Elouise. This humanity aspect happens to be the part of womanising. Actually I wrote this for priests who cannot date or marry. A father who hides his responsibilities in prayer is a nightmare for children and loved ones. May you forgive him and have peace. Love and blessings.

Questions of this sort don’t have an answer. Yet it’s good to at least question. I once asked the doctor, “who you go to when you are sick?”, to this day I’ve not been answered. These are the questions that make you want to go to Mmmmmmm……
